Visit the Coachella Valley History Museum

If you happen to be a history enthusiast heading to Indio in the fall, making time on your itinerary for a stop at the Coachella Valley History Museum is always a good idea! Located at 82616 Miles Avenue, the museum is an intriguing place to learn more about the area’s past and is open Friday through Sunday from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. Since opening its doors in 1965, the mission of the museum has been to preserve, share, and interpret the history of the Coachella Valley. The museum was established by the Coachella Valley Historical Society and hosts a variety of exhibits and displays that guests will surely find engaging and educational. A visit here is a chance to check out a fully restored 1909 2-room schoolhouse as well as a fully furnished 1930s home. A trip through the linked California Date History Museum is a must during your visit while a walk through the Japanese Memorial Garden and the on-site Rose Garden is sure to inspire.

Check Out Fantasy Springs Resort Casino

Fall travelers heading towards Indio that are feeling like they may be finding luck’s favor will want to put that intuition to the test at the Fantasy Springs Resort Casino. This fun and vibrant stop offer up a Las Vegas-inspired vibe right in the heart of Indio. The resort casino is located at 84-245 Indio Springs Parkway and is open 24 hours a day in the name of entertainment.

The casino regularly hosts live musical performers and those who visit can also make the most of bingo fun as well as off-track betting.

Take a Jeep Tour

When you’re excited to make the most of fresh air fun during your fall getaway, a Jeep Tour through the greater Palm Desert area promises to please. This time of year, a Jeep Tour comes with milder temperatures to enjoy but the panoramic vistas are just as breathtaking year-round. The Red Jeep Tours by Desert Adventures are a great place to start when you’re looking to take your adventures off-road this fall.  Both shared and private tour options of the San Andreas Fault are available upon request. These tours are designed to be fun for the entire family and can be booked to focus on everything from Joshua Tree National Park to the Painted Canyon and more.

Hike Through Indian Canyons

While exploring off-road can be a great fall adventure in Palm Desert, the Coachella Valley is just as exciting when you hit the trails on foot. Those fall travelers looking to lace up their boots and trek their way through a stay will find Indian Canyons a captivating place to do exactly that. While the area is packed with scenic beauty, there are a few trails through this destination that stands out from the rest. Andreas Canyon is ideal for those who are looking to pair photography and hiking alike. The terrain along this route is brimming over with lush oasis, palms, and intriguing rock formations too. Murray Canyon is another great hiking destination for travelers that are trekking in a group. It’s possible to spot Peninsular Big Horn Sheep along this route as well as a variety of birds. The trail leads to a fun recreation area when you’re looking to expand on your outdoor adventure.

Visit the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens

Travelers looking forward to connecting with nature and wildlife during their fall getaway will love every second spent at the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens. Located at 479000 Portola Avenue in Palm Desert, this vibrant stop highlights desert plant and animal life at every turn. When guests aren’t enjoying encounters with camels, eagles, and wolves, they can just as easily be exploring the on-site butterfly garden. If your fall trip this way occurs around October, the Living Desert Zoo and Gardens host an annual Howl-O-Ween event that’s ideal for little ones that you’re going to want to check out.
